Graded EX/NM+ 6.5 by SGC (submitted by REA). Outstanding ultra high-grade 1887 N172 Old Judge example of Hall of Famer Sam Thompson (pose #456-5) with an elaborate studio background. In 1887 Thompson led the National League with 545 at-bats, 203 hits, 23 triples, 166 RBI (the highest RBI total in the nineteenth century), a .372 batting average, and a .571 slugging percentage. This is a stunning high-grade N172 Old Judge! Bright and clean, with strong corners, outstanding centering with a natural diamond cut along the top, and superb contrast and image quality. The blank reverse is perfectly clean. A tremendous ultra high-grade N172 example of Sam Thompson worthy of any N172, Hall of Fame, or nineteenth-century card collection. Reserve $500. Estimate (open).
